Word from the Chevron World Challege is that Tiger Woods is sticking with the Nike Method 003 putter for a second consecutive tournament after adding it to his bag at the Australian Masters.
As the Associated Press reports, “Woods also has stuck with the Nike putter he used in Australia, with the shaft in the heel to help him release the blade through the ball. He made it sound as though he was ditching the putter that brought him 13 majors.
‘It’s permanent for this week,’ he said.”
First, Woods cited slow greens in Australia (and earlier, at the British Open) for his allegedly temporary use of the Nike Method putter. Now it sounds like he’s embracing the deeper toe hang of the Method 003 putter as well.
As PutterZone.com readers know, we’ve been following Woods’ putter saga like an episode of “As The Putter World Turns.” We don’t care what happened on Thanksgiving last year, but we are always very curious about what’s in his bag, particularly after he used the same Scotty Cameron putter for more than 10 years, and with people saying not long ago that he’d never part with it. What a difference a year makes, eh?
